A group of businesses in central and western Palm Beach County communities has coalesced to form the new Western Business Alliance, an association committed to strengthening and supporting its members through economic growth, education and community awareness.
These businesses have created a unique alliance that meets the needs of local businesses and the community, while building business-to-business and business-to-consumer relationships.
The Western Business Alliance comprises members who conduct business in Belle Glade, Loxahatchee Groves, Pahokee, Royal Palm Beach, South Bay, The Acreage and Wellington.
“The WBA was founded by a small group of individuals with a vision and passion for creating a more effective way of developing business relationships,” said Ron Tomchin of RPB Technologies, co-founder of the organization. “Collectively, we felt there wasn’t an organization that was serving the needs of local businesses — so we created one.”
The WBA will host monthly events, including lunches and socials, in addition to working on serving the needs of those who do business in the western communities.
“Membership is steadily increasing,” said Membership Chairman Don Gross of Keller Williams Reality. “We are just in the infant stages, and multiple businesses have been joining daily.”
Throughout the year, the Western Business Alliance will host a variety of topical lunches, socials and educational events to build strategic alliances between its members. The WBA’s first event will be a free social from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 16 at the White Elephant Restaurant in Wellington. The event is open to any business member, and pre-registration is requested at www.thewesternbusinessalliance.com.
